WATCH: H∆SHTAG$, Season II

Following on the heels of a popular season I - Red Bull Music Academy's mini-documentary series H∆SHTAG$ returns.

As more and more of the global population comes of age online, the distinction between URL and IRL becomes increasingly hazy. We live in a world of open-source subcultures, where the hyper-local and the hyper-specific never stay that way for long. H∆SHTAG$ Season II focuses in on what happens after a homebrewed music scene or movement becomes a global phenomenon. Who’s left standing once a trend has hit peak hype?
